Control your Samsung TV with your phone using SmartThings

Man controlling his TV using SmartThings app on his Phone

Ever misplace your TV remote? We all have. Did you know that you might have a TV remote in your pocket or even in your hand right now? With SmartThings, you can use your phone to adjust the volume, change the channel, or even start the next episode of Game of Thrones.

Control your TV with SmartThings

  1. Open the SmartThings App on your mobile device, and then select your TV.

    Note: Your TV needs to already be added to SmartThings as a device.

  2. Your mobile device's screen transforms into a remote for your TV.

    Note: The options available will vary depending on the TV connected.

Samsung TV Remote on phone in SmartThings

The volume and channel controls work the same way you would expect them to work on a normal TV remote. You also have access to Mute, Home, Back, and Guide. Use the arrows or the gray box at the bottom to navigate the settings menu or apps. Tap anywhere in the box to make a selection.
